Krita Tutorial: Brushes Part C, Color Smudge Brush



Fiiiinally, this took forever, and so many reworks. ;_; This brush is basically two brushes in one, which can be used in half a dozen ways, and is affected simultaneously by half a dozen separate variables, at the same time. *shoots self*

But I'm glad I'm done! Hurray! In time for Christmas! It's like my early Christmas present is to finally be done with this! Because of the on-canvas interactions, this is probably the most complicated of all Krita brushes, and man am I glad I'm done! :D
